A different shade of babyfur

Hello, all!

Let me start this post with the admission that I am, in fact, a babyfur (no, my avatar is not my fursona). However, I have been accused of not being a "real" babyfur...

There are several tendencies among most babyfurs I know that I personally do not ascribe to. This includes lots of "role play", "e-cuddling", the desire to have a large 'family' (I want none, thank you), and a general tendency to act more... "immature" in an online capacity (I hate using that word, but its the best one I could think of).

So, here's what I'm looking to find out... what are all your thoughts on the idea of 'typical' babyfur behaviors? Is it really typical, or is it just a matter of the vocal minority being more prevalent than the silent majority?

Oh, it's not a matter of what I am. I know what I am, I'm just trying to get people's opinions on the idea of 'typical' babyfur mindset.

I was probably one of those "typical babyfurs" when I started a few months ago, but Mugi (from FTT), among others, kinda influenced me in being somewhat like you. Mind you, I can still act like that sometimes, but I often find the immaturity of attention whores annoying.
If you ask me, you're more of a Diaperfur than a Babyfur, but you know better than me.

Also, you remind me a lot of Cen Aeonis. :V

Heck I don't do any of that stuff yet I consider myself a babyfur. It's really up to the person to decide whether or not they're babyfur.

As for fitting in certain criteria, I was under the impression that a large part of this whole ordeal involved being yourself, not conforming to others standards.

No offense here, just trying to stop something bad before it starts... but let's not be arrogant. It will not accomplish a thing. :no:

Uhh as for my opinion.... there are lots of different kinds of babyfurs. You don't have to adhere to some strict set of rules or anything like that.

Yup, there are no rules to being a babyfur.
If you don't want to be a part of it (whatever "it" is), you don't have to be, and others will respect that if you respect what they do. :)

Similar to my reply above, you don't have to conform to a certain stereotype or mindset to be a babyfur, just an intrest in anthropomorphism and infantilism* (a fondness of small, cute, furry things helps too :))

As for babyfur "tendencies", I have noticed that RP'ing and e-cuddling are indeed quite popular; however, I have noticed very little immaturity in the community** (of course, my definition of "immature behavior" is probably different from yours :dunno:)


*In some cases even these are not needed, you just "are" a BF
**except on FTT, which is definitely not the best example of the BF community

Okay, I'm not trying to attack your opinion or anything, but what did that accomplish? What did you hope to accomplish? You could have stated your opinion without insulting a bunch of people. Also, I mean no offense, but calling people attention whores isn't very mature. :no:

Dear God, do you feel targeted or something? I didn't call anyone an attention whore, nor did I try to accomplish anything. I stated my opinion, and like everyone else in this world, if you don't like my opinion, then IGNORE IT.

I doubt you can say someone isn't a babyfur cause there are really wide descriptions in the whole little word. If YOU say you're a babyfur. Then you are. Don't go off what others think

No, not really. I wasn't saying there was a problem with your opinion. Just forget about it though. I may have misunderstood something you said.

Actually, the intent was to PREVENT drama, but that didn't work out very well. :closedeyes:

I'm in the same situation you are. Something that so much babyfurs say is that they like to feel helpless. Well I've been helpless for 16 years in my life, and I don't like the feeling at all. I'd rather consider myself as a diapered fur.

Really, just be who you are. Don't adhere to what others say you should be, just be what you want to be. If you don't like the stuff that most babyfurs do, then don't do it. Does that make you not a babyfur? It's up to you. That's part of the reason I don't like labels is sometimes it's thought that a stereotypical image comes with it when it doesn't have to. No, you can still be that and don't have to follow the typical image. So, just see yourself as what you want to see yourself as to avoid some confusion, be yourself, which seems more unique I personally find better anyway, don't just be another face in the crowd.
